Sileri: away masks, to be worn only if there is a crowd
“We know that after June 15 the rules are already expected to be revised. We can now not throw away the mask, but keep it in our pocket. Sunday when we go to vote it doesn’t cost us anything to put on the mask if we go to a crowded seat. In my opinion, the obligation of the mask will have to be abandoned, then we will see in September-October, but we cannot live in a perennial emergency “. This was stated today by the Undersecretary of Health, Pierpaolo Sileri. “Today we no longer have to experience the presence of the virus with obsession, but with normality. Unfortunately in September-October it will continue to do some damage among the unvaccinated and the most fragile, but we will be able to manage them as best we can”.
